Gulet Cruises, Turkey

This is a wonderful way to unwind, get a great tan and explore Turkey’s astonishingly beautiful coast in good company. This is a laid-back, floating Houseparty, with no need to dress for dinner! Each charter is exclusive to Friendship Travel, so all guests are single travellers like you.

One of our Hosts meets you on arrival and introduces you to the captain and his small team, who take on Hosting duties for the duration of the cruise. No sailing experience is necessary, because the crew takes care of everything, from reading the weather and sailing (flexing the itinerary if necessary), to catering.

Your Gulet

We charter standard 8 cabin Gulets for our exclusive use. Each ship (approx 22-25 metres in length) has just 8 double cabins for sole use, which means the deck and living spaces are never crowded.

There’s room on deck for a sun bed area, some shaded seating, and outdoor dining. The saloon provides sociable living space and a tiny bar, with a CD player, packs of cards and board games.

The holiday is full board: continental breakfasts and simple 2-course lunches and dinners are produced from the galley, as is a light afternoon tea. Drinks are not included in our package, but beer, wine and soft drinks are available from the bar.

Your Room

Each simple yet cosy cabin offers compact accommodation for one, with 2 port-holes and its own tiny ‘wet room’ style ensuite; in other words the basics that you need for a good night’s sleep. Because of the size of the boat there is limited hanging/storage for clothes (please bring a soft bag instead of a hard rigid case). Most cabins have a double bed, but there are a couple of twin-berths for sole use. As well as bedlinen, towels for washing and swimming are provided.
